The Author Interviews are growing, and here the second update.  Being bold with Kate Forsyth has made me brave enough to ask some of my other favourite authors.  Some of them agreed, so I can now confirm Peter V. Brett, Chris Stocking, Nick Harkaway, Marianne de Pierres, Steph Bowe and James Barclay as new guest interviewees.

Another three authors have confirmed. They are Brad Cotton, Tad Williams and Sean Williams. Dates have not been set for these interview as yet.

Please do not hold me to these dates, as they are by no means hard and fast, but I committed to sticking to these dates.  We are dealing with people that already have busy lives and are doing this as a favour to me.  In saying that, I will try to keep to them as much as possible.

How exciting is this world when you can approach internationally recognised writers and ask them questions.  I have met some incredible authors this way already and I hope to meet so many more.
